In recent years, we have witnessed the tremendous growth of financial and fintech innovations that are transforming financial services, financial markets and the global economy.
We invite high-quality research submissions that study all aspects of finance and fintech innovation. Methodologically, we are especially interested in computational modeling and simulation approaches, including system dynamics, agent-based modeling, network models, machine learning, natural language processing, etc. We encourage interdisciplinary research that appreciates complex systems and seeks to understand, explain, design and/or forecast system behavior. The research should have clear practical implications and it should help managers, regulators and policy-makers make better decisions and create more value, while navigating the complex fintech landscape and its implications.

- Trading and algorithmic trading
